Run 96 – South Downs Half Marathon

Date: Sunday 25th May 16:45pm

Distance: 22.0km

Time: 2:07:32

Pace: 5:48min/km

Description: Not an official race. But it was warm, and wanted to limber up for the Cheddar Half and Scafell Marathon! About a minute over my stormin’ tie at the Cheddar Half last year, but this time without any gels! And 400m of ascent! Took a bottle of PowerAde. Managed a steady jog up the hills. Some amazing views and nice technical bits to focus running down. And a good pace at the end. Felt great, despite the heat. Runs like these, in this scenery, hills, cliffs, the sea, make the soul contented. Love running. Pretty damn pleased about this. Everything apart from the cows. Ain’t no way I’m running through THAT field! Back the way I came!
